QURANIC EVIDENCES ATTESTING TO THE FACT THAT CONTEMPORARY BENEFICIAL
WORKS & SCIENCES FALL UNDER THE RELIGION OF ISLAM
Translator: Mostafa Abdul-Hakim Muhammad Lameu
Indeed, all praise is due to Allaah. We praise Him, seek refuge with
Him, and seek His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allaah from the evils
of our souls and the mistakes in our actions. Whosoever Allaah Guides,
there is none who can misguide him, and whoever Allaah misguides, there
is none can guide him. And I testify that none has the right to be
worshiped but Allaah, and I testify that Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم)
is His Prophet and Messenger.
As for what follows:
This book includes the decisive proofs that Religion of Islam, its
sciences, its deeds and its teachings included all kinds of goodness,
mercifulness and guidance, and righteousness and correctness of every
type in all cases. Also, the cosmic sciences and the beneficial modern
technologies are considered an integral part of the sciences of
religion, but its deeds are not opposed to it as argued by the ignorant
or the materialists. However, every science regarded to be beneficial to
religion and life, groups and individuals is an integral part of Islam.
The religion of Islam referred to it and guided the people to it in
addition to every benefit till the Day of Resurrection. It is clear that
the modern technologies if not based on religion and relevant to it,
will be more harmful rather than beneficial and worse rather than better.
However, this central principle requires two aspects:
Firstly: to know what is signified by the Quran and the Sunnah briefly
and in detail.
Secondly: to be aware of the facts and actual occurrences recognized by
the unprejudiced rational people.
Whenever anybody knows the two aspects, then he will be relevant to the
sciences of Islam. Also, its deeds and industries are originally good
and virtuous. Moreover, the one who is aware of them knows one aspect
through the other, and the mistake will be made when violating one of
them or both.
Whenever the major issues are recognized, they shall be rendered to the
minor ones. And whenever one speaks about minor issues before
understanding the major ones, a grievous mistake will be made, and the
suspicions that deceive the ignorant will be made public, or they will
be held public by the opinionated.
